Tada! It’s called “Keri on Driving.”
300,000 printed, and that’s the circulation number, not the readership :D
It was a rush, seeing my name and words I’d written all printed down the page.
Click to read it on the 24 Hours site; they have a clear PDF you can zoom in on, page 18.
I’m proud of my first one, I like it. Thanks for the emails from you guys saying so too, and nice to meet you!
I was beside myself all day. 30 seconds after my eyes opened, I was out the door to the closest orange box. I ripped out that one and carried it around with me all day in my purse. It’s still in there.
My hand position here belies the butterflies in my stomach.
Now the trick is to keep it going, quality every week, learning to write well under that under-the-gun-all-eyes-on feeling.
I tried to give myself a head start. I’ve kept a list in my phone of car article ideas forever, I have 40. This was me last weekend organizing them. Next week we’ll talk about pedestrians, and something else.
Of course I blurred out the printing, otherwise you too would have good car article ideas.
I tried to collect copies all day, went looking on a walk last night, I ended with up only three. The Sun circulates.
I’ll link up my articles here on KeriBlog every time, and pumped to be a part of the team, Sun Newspaper!
